TV OFF IS AN ELECTRO-POP HYBRID FEATURING A COLOURFUL, HYPERACTIVE SINGER CALLED SARA AND A DEADPAN BEATSMAN EVERYONE AROUND HERE REFERS TO AS MARKKU.

AT A RECENT PERFORMANCE THE DUO WERE DESCRIBED BY ONE CHIN-STROKER AS “LIKE SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR MEETS MOBY”. THE BAND KICKED THE CRAP OUTTA THAT GUY AND HE STILL EATS THROUGH A STRAW. LUCKILY, IT WAS ALL PUT DOWN TO “HIGH SPIRITS”, AND THE OFF WAS ABLE TO RETURN TO THE STUDIO TO START ON THE DEBUT RECORD.

AFTER ONLY A FISTFUL OF GIGS, THE GUYS WERE ATTRACTING ATTENTION ON A SCALE THAT MADE THEM BOTH SMILE LIKE KIDS IN A SWEET STORE (OR SARA IN A SHOE SHOP) AND SOON THEY WERE SNAPPED UP FOR LOVELY THINGS LIKE BEING NOMINATED FOR BEST UPCOMING ACT AT THE BASSO RADIO AWARDS, PERFORMING AT THE DIESEL GLOBAL PARTY EVENT, OPENING THE NEW MINNA PARIKKA STORE (A WOMAN WHO MAKES SHOES THAT ARE SO VALUABLE THAT MOST PEOPLE CAN ONLY AFFORD ONE OF A PAIR), BEING FEATURED IN SNOWBOARDING MOVIES, AND PLAYING ALONGSIDE SUCH COOLNESS-PERSONIFIED-IN BAND-FORM AS CSS, CRYSTAL CASTLES AND MÚM AT FLOW FESTIVAL, AND, RECENTLY, OPENING FOR PATRICK WOLF IN HELSINKI.
